No, the £10 in row N were £5 for Children's Hour & Betrayal. The biggest bargain in London at the time.

The Standard is reporting that who will play which role will not be decided 'til the night:

Yet the SFP website says that a performance casting schedule will be announced shortly:

"Kristin Scott Thomas and Lia Williams will alternate the roles of Kate and Anna, with Rufus Sewell playing Deeley. A detailed performance schedule will shortly be available on the show’s website."

Thank you.

Hm, I would like to hold off booking until I know the schedule. Imagine the bargain seats will be gone by then though.

Oh no, not many people know about them. They're the same price for Chorus of Disapproval, and there are still plenty available for that.

I expect the SFP schedule will divide the performances into three groups: 1) casting A, 2) casting B, and 3) casting to be determined on the night by the toss of a coin.

And what will happen on press do you think? Play it through twice? It's short!

Does the "detailed performance schedule" necessarily have to specify the casting? It doesn't say "casting schedule".

The way it's written suggests that it is casting, though I may be wrong.

I'm sure they will spell out the casting for every night. I saw Frankenstein twice based on the alternate casting, and I booked twice because the NT published the schedule. Had they not done so, I would only have booked once. The producers know they will sell many more tickets at higher prices if they publish the schedule. I think I'll keep my eyes on the SFP website. :)

The only thing is Frankenstein and the Creature are two distinctly different parts, which everybody knows. Here, I have no idea how different the roles of Kate and Anna are from each other, and neither will most punters.
